If you have been following our Blogging Marathon group, you must be aware that we do Mega Marathon twice a year. April and September seem to be just apt for us to do a non stop marathon, just resting on Sundays and cooking non stop for 26 days.

We have been doing the Mega Blogging Marathon since April 2013, 

April 2013 was weekly themes.
September 2013 was ABC Cooking 
April 2014 was Indian Food Odyssey
September 2014 was Around the world in 30 days

So you know we are up to start another Mega BM this April. And this edition's theme is going to be just Baking. So Fire up your Oven all this April along with us!

Baking in all forms. It can be Cakes, Muffins, Savories, Casseroles, Desserts and what not! Only condition being that the entire dish should have been baked and not just the fag end of the dish.

I have not given sub themes, giving my friends to be creative and coming up with their own ideas. I am sure each one of them will come up with such creative dishes that my Bookmarks will increase to no end.

Coming up to my own dishes, I have decided to bake 5 different sub themes, one for each week. I am done with just 15 for now and might change something in the below list. However for now, this is how it stands!

For the first week is going to be Quick Breads
Second Week - Cookies
Third Week - Savory Bakes
Fourth Week - Egg Substitutes
Fifth - Bakes with Fruits and Vegetables

Though the theme was decided months before, as expected I started only last week and even with two bakes a day, it's been too much!. 

For one crazy moment I even thought I will do only chocolate for all 26 days. I realized I will have to go into hiding after that!

Konda promised she was there to certify and I am happy with all the dishes that I have baked till date. 

So come join us in this crazy journey of baking through the month of April with my wonderful group at Blogging Marathon!

Strawberry Shrikhand | How to make Strawberry Shrikhand ~ 3 Ingredient Recipe

>>  Thursday, March 26, 2015

Well yes you read it right. My clueless brain finally decided a shrikhand with strawberry was going to be the next 3 ingredient recipe, especially a dessert! Ever since I have tasted a shrikhand, I have been in love with it. Knowing my love for curds, it's only natural that I love this form of curds as well.

However I have kept myself to the regular forms of Shirkhand. Name it and I have it! Be it the Classic Version of ShrikhandAamrakhandAlmond Pista Shrikhand, Almond Shrikhand, or the very fancy Chocolate Shrikhand. I thought I shouldn't extend myself anymore, however when I was really low in ideas for a delicious dessert, given my own rule of making it with 2 or 3 ingredients, I had to think beyond my normal scope of things. Yes that's when I thought the strawberries, that seem to be a frequent dweller in our refrigerator, because Peddu loves these, would be a great option.

I thought I would get hung curds to do the trick and infact got the hung curds ready couple of days back. And set it in fridge. I was surprised that the strawberries that I added to the hung curds along with sugar, the taste was so good. It wasn't tart or sour, as I was expecting, everything got blended so well.
I served these in single servings as I wasn't sure how each might like it. Even otherwise from my previous experience, I know that it's always best to serve individual shots of these shrikhand.

Sending this to Nisha, who is hosting my Kid's Delight, themed on Beat the Heat

Strawberry Shrikhand

Ingredient Needed:

Hung Curds - 1 cup
Strawberries, hulled - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 3 -4 tsp

How to make the Strawberry Shrikhand.

Make hung curds and refrigerate.  When ready to make, wash and hull the strawberries. Blend the strawberries along with sugar and add the hung curds finally.

Adjust sweetness as required and chill till serving.


Notes:

You can use Icing sugar instead of sugar.
You could use milk to blend if it's difficult to get smooth purée. Then it becomes 4 ingredient recipe..:)
